. but want to go to brian ross in watertown and clearly, brian, this situation is intensified over the last half hour or so after we saw governor deval patrick and the chief, the police commissioner come out and warn everyone to stay inside. a lot more information coming in, brian ross. >> reporter: certainly is and very grim-faced governor and police officials not sharing all they know, but deeply concerned enough to lock down the entire city of boston. tell everybody to stay inside and lock their doors in watertown where they've been searching for suspect number two since about 10:30, 11:00 last night. there's a no-fly zone and a police helicopter circling about a half mile is the primw where they're looking for suspect number two. he is the 19-year-old brother. the other one, the dead suspect, 26 apparently moved here just five years ago and we can see and he was trying to become a boxer on the u.s. olympic boxing team and he wrote on a page posted there, "i have no american friends. i don't understand em?." >> okay, brian. we got from a police scanner chilling information. take

victims of the newton tragedy. i'm here are josh elliott, brian ross, martha raddatz. everyone reported this story all night long after those 12 seconds of terror in boston. >> about three blocks from here, george, just to our left on boylston street and what we can tell you about this mile 26, it's not a finish line now, it looks far more like a war zone. three are dead. 145 injured at least. 15 of them critically as we saw national guardsmen actually deploying into the subway stop right here, as they are moving stop to top through the city this morning. >> boston is shut down and cities across the country are on high alert. we'll talk to also a number of eyewitnesses including the college student who crossed the finish line at the moment of the bomb's impact. >> a new factor now for the entire country. how will our fashion change? and for so many parents waking up with children this morning, what do you say to your kids this morning about the terror here in boston? amy robach, sam champ quion in times square this morning. where there's also a very big police presence. >> we'll get to
ross joins us. brian, what do they know? >> good evening, terry. right now, this is an investigation with great urgency because whoever did it is still at large and it's not known whether more attacks are planned. today there was a great breakthrough. according to the fbi, they have recovered the partial mangled remains of one of the bombs that did not fully explode. it turns out it's made out of common kitchen items, a pressure cooker. this exact model that we bought for $140 tonight about a half mile from here. but at a bomb it was palled with wires, electronic circuit board, tiny ball bearings and nails. all designed to maim and kill and get maximum damage to its victims. this is what remains of the pressure cooker turned into a moment made bomb. seen in this fbi crime lab photo obtained by abc news. it was hidden in a black backpack. what's left of it seen in this photo. the simple bombs were responsible for 12 seconds of horror. cell phone footage shot by a spectator between the two explosions. >> i have have victim here with shrapnel in the leg. >> we need another ambulance dow

of images from the scene, brian ross leads our coverage from boston. good morning, brian. >> reporter: good morning. there's a growing sense of confidence here this morning based on the fbi discovery of a video that appears to catch the moment when a man placed a bag with one of the bombs. officials tell abc news that the best view of the possible suspect comes from a high definition camera at the lord and taylor department store. these shots broadcast by whdh before and then after the blast also played a key role according to authorities. officials so far have declined to make public any image of the man they now suspect. much of the review of the evidence is being done by a special team of agents who have set up in a restricted area near the boston harbor, the so called operational technology division. this is where the evidence is brought for examination and where agents can use special facial recognition software to turn faces into names. >> there is software that allows for facial recognition, even at a distance. it's not 100%, but even a 70 or 80% correlation would narrow down the num
at the possibility of more accomplices, as well and want to go to abc's chief investigative correspondent brian ross for more on that. brian. >> reporter: well, george, they've imposed a no-fly zone over watertown, several thousand police, i would say, have been here going door to door trying to find this suspect. so far without success. we expect the governor, he's just pulled up over here with heavily armed police surrounding him, as well and, in fact, before they set this up, they had dogs come through they said for our safety to make sure that we'd be safe. they continue to feel that this suspect, number two, may not be the only one they're looking for, so they're very concerned there could be other devices and other associates that are attached to this group that hit the boston marathon on monday and then, of course, the wild and violent overnight >> let's get more on this from pierre thomas in washington. pierre, as you've been reporting, brothers from chechnya, at least the two suspects we know of. >> reporter: that's the operating assumption right now, george, and just to piggyback on what
believe happened? let's begin with abc's brian ross, with the latest right now. brian? >> good evening. there are important new clues into the bomb and the bomber. but the road begins with an examination of that bomb. important new details have emerged from fbi agents who say they have recovered a significant part, a mangled piece of one of the bombs, recovered on the scene. it turns out to be a common kitchen item. they say it is a medium-sized pressure cooker that was packed with explosives, wires, and an electronic circuit board, as well as tiny nails and ball bearings, in order to maximize the damage to anyone in the blast zone. authorities believe they can examine that particular half bomb now. they've got it at the base in virginia, where it's being examined by fbi technicians. they believe they can find signatures and footprints that would be unique to that bomb and perhaps match it up to other bombs somewhere else in the world, somewhere else in this country. that will be the road to finding the bomber. the fbi put out a plea to anyone who saw a person carrying an unusually hea

ross, will take us frame by frame through the clues. brian? >> reporter: good evening. federal authorities now believe that a team of at least two men was responsible for the bombings here. as you say, described as armed and extremely dangerous. the fbi is basing its two-bomber theory on these surveillance camera videos and still pictures made public late today. two white men in their 20s, according to the fbi. one with a black cap, the second with a white cap worn backwards. both wearing backpacks that the fbi believe held the bombs. off to the side of this video, runners can be seen heading to the finish line and time code markers indicate the footage was made about 13 minutes before the first bomb went off. the fbi says only one of the two potential suspects, the one with the white cap, was actually seen placing his backpack at the scene of an explosion. >> we are releasing photos of these two suspects. re identift o. they appear to be associated. >> reporter: officials say they made the images public now becae they nd the faces to names. but they warn these are dangerous me
brian ross on the ground all through the night in watertown, brian, a night of gunfire, a night of bombs and now door-to-door search for that dangerous terrorist. >> reporter: that's right, george and dangerous is the word. the fbi described him yesterday as armed and extremely dangerous, those words are certainly true. residents of this town have been told they may not leave their homes. they cannot go in cars, all stores have been shut. this town is shut down as a terrorist is somewhere in the vicinity. it began with the robbery of a convenience store in cambridge, around 10:30 thursday night. a surveillance camera inside the store captured the image that masked the man identified only five hours earlier as suspect number two in the maratho bombin a short while later on the campus of m.i.t. in cambrie, shoot-ou left an m.i.t. police officer dead. next the two men caredck a merced su and led police on a wild, violent chase through the streets of cambridge into neighboring watertown. >> we have reports that they have explosives here at the scene. there are explosives here at the scene. >

anything like it. brian ross on the ground in watertown right now. thousands of police converging on that small town and the other surrounding suburbs of boston. >> reporter: george, i would say not since september 11th of 2001 has it been a sense of powerlessness by the people who live in america that they are at the mercy of unknown terrorists, they've been asked in boston to stay inside, lock their doors, not go out. it's an astounding situation. they haven't really seen in 12 years. >> and, brian, we just heard pierre tell us a few moments ago about one of the killers, the suspect now dead, just walking cooley towards police. do the police have any idea in which direction the suspect number two headed when he was in that mercedes suv? >> reporter: they thought he took off. they thought they had surrounded him in here, but there's been reports since then of spotting him elsewhere and we're just about -- yeah. and we're about to get another announcement. le -- >> the chief the transit on his office.ent will brief you macllin. he will not take any statements. chief? >> good morni
no evidence it was a foreign attack. brian ross on nbc news reported that iraq was behind the attack and i told him his report was wrong. there was still an urge from abc news to describe that as a terrorist attack. you do have to just be guarded until you know. even if it is domestic, you don't know who is behind it, what the reasons are, et cetera. so, again, until you know, don't reach conclusions. let law enforcement and people who wear the uniform, police be the first responders in the communication war as well. the communication response i should say as well to what has happened. the white house should lag behind the others. they're on the ground. they'll get the facts first and then brief the white house. that sequence makes perfect sense. >> ari fleischer, thank you very much. backing how the president responded to this event so far. to those of you just joining us, i want to go through the latest on what we know about the attack in boston today. two people are dead and according to our affiliate, one of the victims is an 8-year-old child. at least 110 have been injured right now.
